DIRECTIONS

  • Grease and flour 2 bread pans.
  • Tap out excess.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Sift flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda together into a small bowl.
  • Stir in wheat germ.
  • Beat eggs until very frothy.
  • Add oil, maple flavoring and both sugars and beat until very light and sugar is more or less dissolved.
  • This takes awhile.
  • You'll need an electric mixer.
  • With mixer on low speed, gradually add the dry ingredients.
  • Dust nuts lightly with flour.
  • Add them along with the zucchini and blend gently into the batter with a rubber spatula.
  • Pour into prepared pans.
  • (I like the pyrex glass ones best for quick breads.) Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Bake for about 1 hour until top of the bread springs back when lightly touched.
  • Cool on wire rack for about a half hour.
  • When ready to remove from pans, slide a knife gently around the edges of the pans to loosen bread.
  • Easy does it.
  • Slide the bread out and allow to cool completely on the bread board.
  • Cover loosely with a light towel or piece of plastic wrap to keep from drying out.
